Fitting Room Snaps:
Last week I shared about my Express contest win (also using that term loosely!) on Instagram and how I got to choose a free shirt from their One Eleven collection as my prize. For those who missed it on Snapchat, I ended up getting this striped top:

Shorts: Guess / Top: Express / Necklace: Old Navy

The top ran true-to-size for me with a relaxed fit. I also picked up the shorts above on the same trip after the some sidebar ads lured me into the store to check them out! (Well played, net marketing team!) They are a very relaxed/oversized fit so your normal size will work or size down if you're between sizes. 

I ended up wearing the shorts right after I got them in this basic California Casual outfit:
Tee: Old NavyShorts: Guess / Necklace: Local Vendor (Similar) / Belt: Target / Sandals: Target (Similar) / Watch: Fossil / Bracelets: Express / Sunglasses: Firmoo/ Nails: Essie Blanc

Birthday Girl!
I love to give my friends a little extra attention on their birthdays, and tomorrow is Skye's, so I hope she doesn't mind if we celebrate a little early! Once upon a time, Skye blogged as The Shopaholic Mom, and we met through blogging when I reached out to her to collaborate on this ancient post about one of our favorite jackets. (Side note, the jacket is out of stock online but Skye just picked up another color in store so I think it's on the way back!)  Anyway, I'm so glad she continues to share her outfits on Instagram because she's still one of my favorites for outfit styling and color pairing inspiration.

And just in case she ever decides to return to blogging, perhaps she could re-brand as the Stripeaholic Shopaholic? Just a thought...

Details on these outfits here or on Instagram 

Suddenly my stripes collection is feeling very inadequate! Anyway, she's a must-follow for me and I'm so glad we crossed paths! I might have to have a margarita (her signature drink if you follow her on Snapchat: Skye815) in her honor this weekend!

  6. Those shorts look great on you! I think I prefer them with the more fitted white top, but either way they're really cute. I need another pair of jorts so badly..mine are either falling off or too short (I am 25 now..need to get longer lengths!!) Hope you have a great weekend and I'll get a marg in honor of Skye as well ;)

  7. Loving all of these outfits! And now I am convinced I need that coral colored cami - it is calling my name!!!

    1. Thanks Sydney. They do run true-to-size with a relaxed fit through the hips and waist. (You can't really tell the from my pics and with the tops I'm wearing but they're not fitted in that area.)

  20. I love the shoes that you have on with the coral cami. I also love your instagram photos, they are always so nice. When ever I try to takes type of photos, they always look so blah.
